2014 All Unruly Team

2014 ALL UNRULY TEAM

Football is the number one sport in our country, and I’m sure you know why. I mean, what’s better than playing Central if you’re Mendham, or Pope John if you’re Sparta—rivalries that go back so far they’re coded in your DNA? What’s better than leaving it all on the field, in front of every person that’s ever meant anything to you, and then a bunch you’ll never even meet? What’s better than walking the hallway on Friday with teachers yelling “good luck tonight” and girls sneaking candy into your lockers? And you know that guy who was a little quiet, sat in the back of the room, kept to himself, then—bam. He’s on the field, making noise, and suddenly all that size isn’t awkward. All that size means he’s a beast.

Nothing’s better than high school football.

First downs, wrapping a guy up behind the line of scrimmage, and only nine regular-season games which means every game—EVERY senior-season game—is three hours of live-or-die inches. And then Vernon defeats Pope John. Par Hills takes down Roxbury. Hackettstown upsets Hanover Park. It’s any given Sunday all season long, which means every game is an open lane, a tank of gas, and full throttle—and you’re the driver.

In the car with you are the guys you’ve been hanging around the locker room with for years. You’ve shared your tape, your Gold Bond, and even your deodorant with these guys. Maybe that’s why it’s the number one sport. Not being alone makes the wins 100-decibel concert-screaming insanity. And the losses? Just being in the room with your team makes you feel worse for letting them down—worse because you actually care—and worse because all you want is to get back out there and make it right. And you do. And it’s worth it. Because that taste of victory after defeat? That’s the taste of an ice-cold Gatorade after a two-a-day in August.

Putting together an Unruly Team celebrates it all: the guys that make it happen and the way they do it. You guys are the superstars of North Jersey, the guys everyone is talking about in grocery stores and at gas stations, the guys that put it all on the line for us. That’s what we’re about at Morris Sussex Football: talking up the names we hear, and for reasons that go beyond coach recommendations and statistics.

I hope your name is on our list. You deserve it.

The 2014 Mt Lakes team defined what Coach Wilkins changed their named to "Herd" by playing as a complete team.

All Unruly Team of the Year – Mountain Lakes
Are you kidding me with this Mt. Lakes roster? The third stringers would be starters on most any other team in Morris-Sussex. The current senior class varsity record is 35-1, which includes three state finals appearances and two state championship titles. And they are currently on a 24-game win streak. Look at the line alone. Anthony Smith, Chiso Egbuchulam, Kevin Beimfohr and Patrick Cabana could literally teach a blocking clinic. Jack Palazzi, Bobby Frawley and Brad Landry would be featured runningbacks on most any other team in North Jersey. Quarterback Brad Smith is the consummate field general. And the Herd defense is ridiculous. They let up 7 points per game in the regular season. Guys like Brian Olshanksi, Davis Thompson, John DuBose, Mike Aiello, Sean Breslauer and Will Ratchford will go down in Mt. Lakes’ lore for their shutdown style of play. Even special team was lights out for the Herd. Zander Kotsen, who is probably the best athlete on the team, pinned more punts inside the opposing 20 than anyone else in Morris-Sussex. Of course, having all that talent didn’t hurt their ability to win games, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Coach Darrell Fusco and his dedicated staff. Fusco is breeding a winning culture and work ethic that he instills way before Week 1 of the season. We salute you Mt. Lakes, and honor you with this year’s All Unruly Team of the Year award.

All Unruly Coach of the Year – Dave Albano, Par Hills
Albano took a freshman quarterback, an undersized runningback, a bunch of scrappy tough kids from the streets of Morris Plains (okay, I’m being a little dramatic) and then physically kicked the crap of everyone they faced (that is not an exaggeration) until they won the ultimate prize. Albano has been ranked as the preseason favorite to win states quite a few times but was never able to bring it home. This year the Vikings were rated as a solid team but nobody picked them to win states. But Albano had his team believing that nothing could get in their way. All season, the Vikes pounded, pushed and clawed their way until they ended up beating Cranford at MetLife Stadium to win Albano his first state championship.

All Unruly Player of the Year – Anthony Argula, Sparta
Coming into this season, senior Sparta quarterback Anthony Argula was on no one’s radar. Opponents would prepare for guys like Fischer, Faria and Gennat in those early games. But in Week 4 Argula had his “I have arrived” moment

Sparta QB Anthony Argula was impossible for opponents to get their hands around in the 2014 season.

Sparta QB Anthony Argula was impossible for opponents to get their hands around in the 2014 season (Pope John Boosters).

when he single handedly slashed, dashed, passed and muscled the Spartans into a 34-28 victory over their cross-town rival Pope John. Argula played in fifth gear all season by completing 186 passes on 255 attempts for a 72.9 passing percentage. He accumulated 2,516 passing yards and a whopping 41 touchdowns on an 11-game win streak that included a state championship title over River Dell at MetLife Stadium.  It’s Argula who wins our 2014 top honor!

All Unruly Offensive Player of the Year – Andrew Papantonis, Delbarton
Papantonis is clearly the best athlete on the field every time he steps onto the turf. He first caught our attention when he was returning kicks to the big house last year as a freshman…oh yeah, by the way, he’s only a sophomore. To be honest, his 359 yards rushing and 26 catches for 361 yards isn’t winning anyone a fantasy football league. But it’s the intangibles Papantonis brings to the field and his team that make him flat out deadly. He is a scoring threat from Delby’s own 1-yard line. He also opens up the offense for the rest of the Delbarton players because opponents have to know where he is at all times. My favorite AP moment was when he willed Delby into the state finals at MetLife with his scintillating performance against St. John Vianney in the semis. I predict that Papantonis will be playing on Saturdays in a few years (the other kind of Saturdays). In the meantime, we get to enjoy this super-athlete for two more seasons.

All Unruly Defensive Player of the Year – Bill Murray, Delbarton
I think Murray might be my favorite player of all time. Off the field he is a model citizen. People say the 6’6, 260lb defensive tackle is the nicest kid they ever met. You can find the mild-mannered senior helping young kids or working on community service projects. He’s even an Eagle Scout. On the field it’s a completely different story. It’s like a switch goes off and he turns into the Incredible Hulk. He throws 250lb linemen around like they are

Delbary's Murray was a nightmare for opposing offenses all season long.

rag dolls, and tackles kids like they said something bad about his family. He literally grabs ball carriers’ jerseys from the hash marks and whips them out of bounds. Check out his Hudl and see for yourself. Murray is my guy on defense and a can’t-miss for the college that lands him. I predict this D1 recruit will be playing on Sundays in a few years.

All Unruly Quarterback of the Year – Kyle Presti, Kinnelon
The rest of his life, Presti will outdo every Al Bundy story ever attempted. You can picture it thirty years from now: Some hot shot executive will be across the board room and say, “I scored five touchdowns in one game, what did you do?” Presti will lean back in his chair and modestly respond, “Well, there was this one game when I threw for nine touchdowns.” Nine touchdowns, yet the NJSIAA left this deserving team out of the playoffs. By the end of the season, Presti had thrown for over 3,200-yards and 38 touchdowns as he led the Colts to a 7-3 finish. Presti was the Peyton Manning of Morris-Sussex and his stellar quarterbacking unquestionably earns him this top honor.

Luke Robertson leaves North Warren as its all time leading rusher.

Luke Robertson leaves North Warren as its all time leading rusher (Mary Rose Rode).

All Unruly Runningback of the Year – Luke Robertson, North Warren
I know Robertson had 100 tackles, averaged 35 yards punting, and, every game, pinned a punt inside the opposing 20-yard line. But if I assemble a team I want this kid running the ball for me. Although not the biggest ‘back in Morris-Sussex at 5’11, 185lbs, his heart is the size of a lion’s and he plays with the kind of passion that scares opponents…which I love. Every time he touched the ball he ran 6 yards, and ended his career as North Warren’s all-time leading rusher with 3,355-yards.

All Unruly Wide Receiver of the Year – Tomasz Radomski, Hanover Park
I played at Hanover Park (back when tablets where made of stone) and can vouch for the fact that although we maintain a tradition of hard-nosed, tough football teams, we’ve NEVER been known for our passing…until Tomasz Radmomski enrolled in the program. This kid literally looks like Randy Moss in a Hanover Park uniform, and has transformed the Hornets into a perennial throwing powerhouse. The 6’4, 190lb wideout was instrumental in helping HP score 34 points per game during their 6-4 campaign that included a playoff bid. He ended up with 795 yards on 35 catches and 12 TDs. The best part? He’s only a junior.

All Unruly Tight End of the Year – Dean Grogg, Morristown-Beard
Pound for pound, Dean Grogg is probably the best all-around football player in Morris-Sussex. He put in a ton of work in the offseason and built himself into a 6’3, 240lb machine. Grogg was vicious on defense, collecting 11 sacks on opposing quarterbacks and forcing double teams on just about every play. Because of his size and quickness, he was a threat on offense, averaging 21-yards per catch. I could have given him my All Unruly Defensive End of the Year Award and he’s going to be play D at Albany, but I want to be throwing the ball to him.

All Unruly Lineman of the Year – Andrew Otterman, Delbarton

Delbarton's offensive tackle Andrew Otterman was one of the top lineman in the state during the 2014 campaign.

Delbarton’s offensive tackle Andrew Otterman was one of the top lineman in the state during the 2014 campaign (Chris Chambers).

What’s 6’6, 285lbs, runs a sub-five 40 and serves up eight pancakes a game? Yup, you guessed it: it’s the big bad #74 Andrew Otterman of Delbarton. No one was more frightening to face for defensive lineman and linebackers than Otterman. In the run game he was opening up holes the size of the Lincoln Tunnel for Andrew Sanders and company to run through. His footwork in pass protection was ballerina-esque as he allowed the Green Wave to throw for 1,475-yards and 20 touchdowns. If I’m a college coach recruiting linemen in Morris-Sussex, I want to be in the Otterman’s living room. We’re going to miss the senior tackle as he moves on to play for Northwestern where he will surely make a huge impact.

All Unruly Interior Lineman of the Year – Richard Jones, North Warren
The second lineman I am picking for my all-star lineup is North Warren’s senior guard Richard Jones. I don’t care that this kid is 6’1, 170lbs. Nobody, and I mean nobody, delivers more of a bone-crushing block than Jones when he’s pulling in front of a runningback. I actually feel bad for the defensive ends and linebackers he’s pancaked this year because he hits that hard. I’m not sure if he’s trying to kill people or block people. As good as Luke Robertson is, he’s not breaking the 3,000 rushing career mark without Jones plowing in front of him.

All Unruly Defensive Lineman of the Year – Brandon Yaw, Roxbury
I am literally naming my next kid Brandon Yaw. Are you flipping kidding me with this kid? There is no player in Morris-Sussex that plays with the RPM’s revved up as high as Yaw. The Paramus coach is still having nightmares about him even though they beat Roxbury in the playoffs. Here’s the scouting report on Yaw: He has full reign on whether to play DT or DE, wherever he feels he can kill you the quickest; and if he even lays a pinky on you, he can envelope you in this crocodile death-role tackle I’ve never seen done before. It’s impossible to even calculate how many tackles he had because he’s in on everything. Don’t feel bad if you missed seeing him this season because he’s only a junior and we get another season of Yaw.

Par Hill's defense road linebacker Jared Sagaldo's passion all the way to a state title.

Par Hill’s defense road linebacker Jared Salgado’s passion all the way to a state title (Chris Chambers).

All Unruly Linebacker of the Year – Jared Salgado, Par Hills
Par Hills wasn’t winning games this year; they were beating opponents. Defensively the Vikings were punishing teams, and their main battering ram was #33 Jared Salgado. Salgado was in on almost every tackle and set a single-season record for Par Hills with 171. He also had five sacks, two interceptions, and he caused two fumbles while leading his team to its first state championship title in school history. Oh yeah, did I mention he’s only a junior? Opposing teams had to know where Salgado was at all times and that is the kind of guy that I want in my linebacking corps.

All Unruly Defensive Back of the Year – Jordan Powell, Morristown
This kid is redonk! Forget that on offense he scored every four times he touched the ball on offense—those are real stats, look them up. And, I don’t think anyone has had more batted down passes than #5, making him the most frustrating player to pass against for opposing quarterbacks. But the thing I love most about Powell is that he looks like and plays like a guy from the 1930’s. Powell doesn’t just tackle kids; he twists them, yanks their bodies and throws them eight yards away. In the end, he accumulated 64 tackle/twist/throws. He’s the epitome of an All Unruly Player.

All Unruly Special Teams Player of the Year – Matt McFadden, Morristown-Beard
I am telling you right now that McFadden is the fastest kid I have ever seen who also has no regard for his body. He literally receives kicks from a standing position and takes off at 4.3 speed. His scouting YouTubes look like video games. Yeah, on offense he ran and caught for over 1,500-yards and 20 touchdowns; and defensively he had a ton of tackles and caught a bunch of interceptions. But McFadden will be returning kicks for my team. He’s the Devon Hester of Morris-Sussex.

All Unruly Most Versatile Player of the Year – Christian Bassolino, Hanover Park
What can you say? Bassolino was one of the most exciting players to ever come out of Hanover Park. And considering that’s where I got my start, that’s saying a lot. In all seriousness, Bassolino was absolutely ridiculous through the air with almost 1,900 passing yards and 17 passing TDs. On the ground he ran for another 1,000 yards and an astonishing 19 TDs. Bassolino battled through a very tough schedule to land the Hornets in the playoffs and earn the respect of every opponent he faced.

All Unruly Heart of a Lion Player of the Year – Angelo Gallego, Par Hills
If there were no Angelo Gallego, there would be no 2014 Par Hills State Championship. Gallego was the engine under the hood for the Vikings. The 5’5, 160lb played like a giant, rushing for 1,789 and scoring 18 touchdowns, setting a single-season rushing record for Par Hills.

All Unruly Rookie of the Year – Nick Verducci, Par Hills
I don’t know what you were doing at age 14 but getting knocked around by 17 and 18-year-old varsity football players would NOT have been on top of my list. But Verducci not only did that, he also did some head knocking of his

own. In the end, this freshman prodigy took the helm of a pass-happy offense, threw for 1,526 yards and 19 TDs, and ran for four more TDs as he guided his high school to its first state championship in school history.

All Unruly Leadership Award
Although they had a .500 record and ended up making it to the first round of the state playoffs, Mendham’s season did not end the way they’d hoped it would. But in my opinion what these seniors did for Mendham’s football program is even better than winning a state championship. When Rich Masiello, Chris Jones and Tim Byrne were named captains last season, they huddled up their fellow seniors and vowed to create a winning culture by treating teammates with respect and building camaraderie. Fellow seniors like David Berkinsky, Jack Powers, James Govan, Connor Brady, Mike Rikkola, Nick Ferreira and Spenser Clouse all followed suit. Seniors that hadn’t played the year before came out to join the team. After every game, win or lose, parents held post-game feasts at someone’s house, and invited every player and all their parents—dinners that nearly every varsity and junior varsity player

Although Mendham's record doesn't reflect it, this senior team's leadership will certainly leave an imprint on their football program for years to come.

attended. A parent of a sophomore player told my wife that although their kid won’t see a down of even JV football, the kid loved being on the team and thought the world of the seniors. So although this Mendham team was on the losing end of some rough blowouts, this senior group did something special. It is this kind of leadership that has All Unruly all over it, and we tip our cap to them in total respect.

All Unruly Selfless Award – The Kinnelon Offensive Line and Runningbacks
By now everyone in New Jersey pretty much knows that Kyle Presti was the leading passer in the state with 3,200 yards passing and 38 TDs, including his nine touchdown performance against Sussex Tech during the Colt’s last

Kinnelon's offensive line and runningbacks Travis Rode and Liam Nelson kept Kyle Presti's jersey clean all season long by not allowing one sack.

consolation game. But do you want to hear the most interesting stat? During all that passing, Presti was sacked ZERO times. Yup, that is a fact. You can thank the offensive lineman for a lot of that, including Patrick Stewart, Richard Hoffman, Dillon Chiuchiolo, David LoCascio and Jarrett McSpirit-Brush. And you also have to give credit to senior runningbacks Travis Rode and Liam Nelson who sacrificed going out for passes or even running the ball in exchange for staying in and providing extra protection for Presti. Presti dropped back 269 times and did not get tackled once, which is a huge testament to the these fine gentlemen up front for giving up their bodies for their quarterback.

All Unruly Assistant Coach of the Year – Wade Pickett, Lenape Valley

Lenape Valley's Wade Pickett had an eventful Fall, but still was able to show up and be an inspiration for the Patriots and everyone around him.

Lenape Valley’s Wade Pickett (pictured with son) had an eventful Fall, but still was able to show up and be an inspiration for the Patriots and everyone around him (Lenape Valley Boosters).

When I was doing my research for the All Unruly Awards, I reached out to all the Morris-Sussex coaches and asked for a list of guys that played with an uncanny desire to win, guys that showed up for every play and each practice, but might not have gotten the headlines. Lenape Valley coach Don Smolyn asked if his comments could go beyond his players. He told me a story about his offensive line and defensive back coach, Wade Pickett, about the heart this guy brought to every day of his coaching. The story starts the first week of school. Coach Pickett was teaching his computer class when half his body went numb. He was rushed to the hospital, and several tests later, discovered he had a brain tumor and needed surgery—immediately. “This happened on a Thursday and by Monday Wade was on the operating table,” Smolyn explains. The surgery was a success, but Coach Pickett received precautionary chemotherapy and radiation, and was forced to take a medical leave from his teaching duties. But Pickett couldn’t stay away from his team. “I told Wade to take it easy but before you knew it, he was back at practice helping us out,” Smolyn continues. “He would spend hours during the day getting treatments then he’d be there are practice helping us out.” Pickett didn’t think it was that big of a deal though. “The kids were phenomenal about the whole situation. The parents were great too,” Pickett says about his return. “I really wasn’t that sick [from the treatments]. I took it slow at first but then the doctor said it was okay for me to be on the sidelines.” Pickett, who is in nineteenth year with Coach Smolyn says Lenape Valley is a special place and loves coaching here. “I grew up in the middle of Pennsylvania where the high school was all there was in town so everyone would come to the games. Lenape Valley has that same kind of feeling. I am very fortunate that I landed coaching at this school and with this coaching staff.” It’s Coach Pickett’s dedication and love of his team that earns him the All Unruly Assistant Coach of the Year.

All Unruly Reporter of the Year – Matt Bove, Morris Sussex Football
We salute Matt Bove, our senior sports reporter with the All Unruly Reporter of the Year award. Bove, a journalism major at William Patterson University, came to us as a hungry writer looking to tell stories about high school football in North Jersey. He devoured every assignment we gave him and crushed articles by doing the footwork great reporting requires. He also moved from the press box to reporting from the field to get close to the action. And, he conducted his post-game interviews with boldness and persistence, asking questions that drilled to the substratum of the action on the field. Bove is moving on from Morris Sussex Football to work as a sports reporter/editor with NJ.com, which is always our end-goal at Morris Sussex Football: to give a little to our guys in hopes that it helps in their future. We wish Bove the best, and hope you continue to check out his sports coverage.

    What a great job recognizing so many players. Keep up the good work promoting high school football. Wish more assistant coaches could be recognized for the hard work and sacrifice they put in. Wade Pickett is so worthy . Dave Albano has done a tremendous job with his team.
